“In England as your Lordship may . . .”

November 17, 2009

In England as your Lordship may well remember, the King was not only made a close prisoner, his Crowne, his life, and the succession of his posterity declared against, but also all those parties that stood for him there, or had declared in his behalfe, and taken armes for his rescue, were wholy dispersed, and subdued:  yea and all other men, whose parts, honesty, or publique interest made them worthy of a suspition, either imprisoned, banisht, or utterly disarmed.
